Guide to South Africa

As a destination, South Africa is best for just about anyone. The exchange rates for Dollar and Pound against the local currency, the Rand, make it one of the best countries to visit that offer real value for money.

Whether you are retired couples, multigenerational travellers, honeymooners, it's a nation that offers gently relaxed tourist activities to heart-thumping, high octane sports and everything in between.

If you are travelling from Europe with young children, you will be pleased with the virtual absence of time different / jet lag. As well, some of the beautiful Cape Town homes for rent, deliver that level of comfort, style and security that suit all travellers regardless of demographic.

When to Visit South Africa

It's south of the Equator. What this means is that the country enjoys its summer season December to February and winter from June to August.

If you are keen on whale watching then the Overberg coastal region, east of Cape Town welcomes its mammal visitors from June to November annually.

In springtime about two-thirds of the flowers bloom here. This is a dazzling display by any standards and something worth seeing once in a lifetime.

The busiest months are December to February. The weather is delightfully warm. There are some windy weather fronts, but the sheltered areas of Cape Town like Clifton are tucked away from some of the windier conditions.

April to August is considered a good time to go on safari as some of the vegetation on the plains thins out so the animals are easier to spot.

Getting There

In 12 hours, non-stop you can get from UK to South Africa. One of the most attractive features of any vacation to this region is the similar time zones to the UK. Usually only an hour in difference or at most 2 hours (in winter), you won't find yourself battling the inconvenience of jet lag.

Safaris

The destination boasts a huge variety of wildlife and is one of the main things people come to see.

Whether you’re a seasoned safari goer, or its your first time, you can’t visit this destination without experiencing an authentic safari.

The country offers an abundance of diversity in wildlife including the Big 5 (lion, buffalo, leopard, rhino, and elephant). Seeing any one of these exceptional animals would be a once in a lifetime experience for you and the rest of your party.

Kruger National Park is possibly one of the best places to enjoy a safari, or the unique Addo Elephant National Park. Here elephant numbers have bounced back from only 11 to over 450.

The friendliness and warmth of South Africa is what stays with us long after we return home. There's really no place quite like it. It's a paradox. Ancient and modern. Exciting and laidback. Mysterious yet open.

It's a country we invariably visit for something specific like a safari, wine-tasting, winter sun, beaches, mountains but then find ourselves lured back again and again to broaden our experience.

Prepare to be dazzled.
